I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight —Jeremiah 9:24
Proximity has taught me some basic and humbling truths, including this vital lesson: Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. My work with the poor and the incarcerated has persuaded me that the opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice. Finally, I’ve come to believe that the true measure of our commitment to justice, the character of our society, our commitment to the rule of law, fairness, and equality cannot be measured by how we treat the rich, the powerful, the privileged, and the respected among us. The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated, and the condemned. —Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
Give us the right kind of ruler, God of Justice, one that measures character by how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated, and the condemned. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
